The paper discusses MOOCs as a special format for distance teaching and learning. A grounded theory study of teachers and students in a Teacher Training Program MOOC and their experiences with teaching and learning in MOOCs is presented. We argue for a special focus on roles and relations, which in the MOOC-format is challenged in new ways since the presence of the teacher – when the teacher has left the platform – is a certain kind of presence. Our findings show that the teacher still plays a major role in a MOOC and the relationship between student and teacher is important. Our work shows a need for students to be part of a learning environment and the need for proper response and correction is articulated as highly important. The concept of Present-Absence which derives from the empirical study is proposed to gain further understanding of teachers’ representation in MOOCs.
